    DECEMBER 07 AMV Contest REVAMPED

    Due to some unfortunite events the last contest was cancelled. This NEW contest is open to all who can submit an entry within the timeline given.

    AO is proud to present its Third ever periodic Anime Music Video (AMV) contest!

    If you plan on entering please READ EVERYTHING ON THIS PAGE!

    Entry Time Line:
    Submission deadline for the contest is 11:59 PM EST FEBRUARY 28th, 2008

    Rules:
    Submissions must adhere to the following rules:
    1. Only 1 submission per person of an AMV you and ONLY YOU created.
    a. You may consult anyone you wish but YOU must have done the work.
    b. You cannot copy aspects of another AMV, this includes matching exact footage to the same soundtrack. I.E. No Plagerism
    2. AMV must be of “good” quality* (See note below) to be accepted.
    3. Video must conform to site rules (No Hentai, for example)
    4. You must state the series & production studio(s) for the video footage
    5. You must state the artist(s)/group(s) and song(s) used in your AMV
    6. Your video must be at least 3:00 minutes in length
    7. If your AMV contains SPOILERS or EXPLICIT lyrics then it should be marked as so
    8. Video must be loaded to ONE of the below sites and linked back to AO.
    9. Submissions must be in the contest entries forum (Here) and follow the sample submission below.
    * “good” quality means that the audio, video and effort are well done and thought out. Simply adding audio to a clip of consecutive unedited/unclipped series footage is not allowed. Also poor quality (YouTube-ish) SOURCE video footage is not acceptable.

    Voting:
    Voting will be via a PUBLIC poll for all of AO to cast their views on.


    Each of these entries will be reviewed and the voting will be based on the following:

    Theme – Each AMV has a overall theme, did the creator capture that?

    Footage quality – is their footage high quality or are there logos, subtitles or just fuzzy low quality footage? Also did they pick footage that helped them capture the theme?

    Quality of sound – is the sound crisp and clear or does it sound like a low quality midi? Also did they pick music that helped them capture the theme?

    Syncing - How well the music matches the on goings of the footage, this can be in the “theme” of the song; by the actual words matching the footage or that the footage matches the “beat” of the music (such as explosions).

    Originality - Is the concept or theme fresh and new thus standing out or is it the same old same old.

    Effort/Effects - Did the creator put time and effort into the vid using a lot of effects and blending the scenes or did they just stick a song to some random footage.

    (No where did I say anything about their opinion of the member, no vote will be based on the creator or their opinion of him/her)

    After considering the above please cast your vote as to the best AMV.

    Re: DECEMBER 07 AMV Contest REVAMPED

    One question since I would really love to try my hand at this contest.

    Are AMV's with still images acceptable? I'm talking about MAD movies that, more than often, have Visual Novel pictures tell the story along with the music instead of a video clip. If it isn't okay, I'll use one of my many anime.

    I see no issue with it, there is no restriction that the clips have to be animated. I can't say it will work well for you but your more than open to try it

    It was unfortunate what happened, but I'm officially challenging anyone who wants to enter to beat my AMV entry. when the contest first started, I decided to keep my entry secret till the voting process started, this time around I won't, and in the interest of fairness, I'm using the same entry.

    Any and all challengers will be accepted... If you think you can win that is

    ++| A M V - Video Information: My Torment (Recommended)
    YouTube - My Torment
    Length: 4:55
    Size: 70.9 MB
    Format: Windows Media Video (WMV)

    Video Footage from:
    Series: End of Evangelion
    Production Studio: Gainax

    Audio from:
    Group/Artist: Staind
    Song: Mudshovel
    Album: Dysfunction

    General Information:
    A darker themed AMV, My Torment uses End of EVA with Mudshovel by Staind, which originally is a song about A man losing it when he finds out that his girlfriend is cheating on him, but it fits perfectly with the whole end of the world theme from EVA.

    The AMV.org version is STRONGLY recommended, as there is one scene in particular (The very final scene) that can only be clearly seen with the full version.

    WARNING
    This AMV contains one brief scene of Nudity, profanity, and a butt load of spoilers. But who cares, Bring on the Torment!!
